Our Signature Event

Named in honor of one of CIPSfounding directors, the late longtime CEO of Parkland Hospital, Dr. Ron Anderson, the award is annually presented to a public servant leader exemplifying the hallmarks that defined the great doctor’s life, service, and legacy.

Dr. Anderson was anything but ordinary. He was a man of uncommon leadership, a servant leader with an unwavering commitment to help others with humility, compassion and integrityqualities endangered in public leadership today.  Dr. Ron Anderson gave four decades of his life fighting for quality health care for the poor. The renowned reputation of Parkland Health and Hospital System today as one of the leading public hospitals in the world is due in no small part to the dedication and lifetime work of Dr. Ron Anderson.
